B-Corp Consulting

Thinking that goes beyond profit

People are at the centre of the world’s most innovative companies. 

Employees and potential talent are looking to make a contribution that stretches far beyond profit and work with organisations with purpose and values that align to their own. 

At Unitive we work with leaders and businesses that aim to harness the power of business for a more inclusive, just and sustainable world. These are conscious businesses dedicated to co-creating a better future, that understand business has the power to lead humanity.

The Unitive Group is on a continuous business improvement journey to demonstrate that we walk the talk. B Corporation certification is an external benchmark and validation of your commitment to the triple bottom line – People, Planet and Profits.

B Corporation certification aligns with our work in change leadership, mindset coaching, finding ways to reinvent organisations and humanise our workplaces to become more conscious organisations.

What is B-Corp?

Certified B Corporation® businesses are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose. B Corp™ organisations are accelerating a global culture shift to redefine success in business and build a more inclusive and sustainable economy.

Society’s most challenging problems cannot be solved by government and non-profits alone. The B Corp™ community works toward reduced inequality, lower levels of poverty, a healthier environment, stronger communities, and the creation of high-quality jobs with dignity and purpose. By harnessing the power of business, B Corp™ businesses use profits and growth as a means to a greater end: positive impact for their employees, communities, and the environment.

B Corp™ organisations form a community of leaders and drive a global movement of people using business as a force for good. The values and aspirations of the B Corp™ community are embedded in the B Corp™ Declaration of Interdependence.

B Corp™ Certification

B Corp™ Certification doesn’t just evaluate a product or service; it assesses the overall positive impact of the company that stands behind it. And increasingly that’s what people care most about.

Certified B Corporation® businesses achieve a minimum verified score on the B Impact Assessment—a rigorous assessment of a company’s impact on its workers, customers, community, and environment—and make their B Impact Report transparent on bcorporation.net. Certified B Corporation® organisations also amend their legal governing documents to require their board of directors to balance profit and purpose.

The combination of third-party validation, public transparency, and legal accountability help Certified B Corp™ organisations build trust and value. B Corp™ Certification is administered by the non-profit B Lab®.
